Astute prepares to begin trials

The much-delayed Astute nuclear attack submarine is about to leave BAE's facilities at Barrow-in-Furness to begin sea trials pending the completion of final testing. Three more Astutes are currently under construction and parts have been ordered for a 5th. There are likely to be 7 Astutes eventually... or hopefully depending on how bankrupt Britain is in the next decade.
